Director's Comments: I make every attempt to minimize errors on the keys and make sure that the problems are valid, workable and the correct answer is available. However, with all of my efforts and the efforts of the person(s) proofing the tests, ERRORS HAPPEN. I will post any corrections to the past year’s tests and current year's tests along with any comments pertaining to errors or problem statements (See Test Corrections and Comments in the right sidebar). If anyone knows of any errors or thinks there are errors please email me so I can address them. If a constructive comment on a particular problem is sent to me I will address it and other items in the "Off on a Tangent" section of these postings. Your report of errors and constructive comments will assist me in making the tests better.
